1 Interacting with the Animated Maps in PowerPoint – 3 Things You Should Know (1) Each animated map is ‘embedded’ into a PowerPoint slide as a Flash (.swf) file. This means you can copy/paste these slides into other PowerPoint presentations or play it from a CD and the maps will function properly. Make sure each computer which plays the slideshow is Flash-enabled (see above). (2) You can interact with the maps on each slide just like you would on the website –use your mouse to hover over the map and access its controls. Once you’re ready for the next slide, double-click outside of the map. You can also press the ‘Space Bar’ to advance through the presentation after clicking outside the map. (3) Interacting with Flash content in Microsoft PowerPoint can sometimes be tricky, and you might accidentally stop a map half-way during playback. Never worry! Just right-click on the map and select ‘Rewind.’ This will reset the map back to the beginning. If you find yourself with a loading screen and no ‘Play’ button, right-click and select ‘Play’ until a play-button appears or the map plays. Each map also has a ‘Replay’ button at the end which you can use to reset it. Quick hint: Remember to ‘Rewind’ all of the maps before you begin a slideshow in front of an audience. If things get really screwy, just re-insert (or re-paste) the map from this file. You can always re-download a clean version of this file from Welcome to Maps-of-War ! Maps-of-War is a multimedia site dedicated to producing diverse, creative visuals that enhance our understanding of war and its history. Each map is well-researched and based in fact, and none of the work is meant to be biased or political. No spin or opinion, just fact-based conclusions about the history of war. All maps are free to save or share for your own use! In order to view the maps correctly, you must have Macromedia Flash Player installed on your computer. Most internet- enabled computers usually do. If you do not have Flash, you will see only blank white boxes instead of animated content on the following slides. You can download it for free here:
